It's a long story dress...

Dresses are an easy way to pull together a look so I could not resist falling in love with this one.   It's little pops of coral give it a little boost of happy, perfect for a dinner out, a walk on the beach, a BBQ,  you name it. 

 This is "the long story dress" from mark.  a budget friendly beauty and fashion line.  I'm always looking for a deal so when I found out I could get this baby for a discount I was in!  Although I'm technically now a "rep", I am definitely my best customer since I enjoy the 35% discount. 
scarf and cardi from H&M, glasses Walmart
So the long story is really a short story, play around with accessories you already own and try to add pieces that can take you a long way for your buck.  This dress just might turn into my summer uniform and for $34 bucks it will pay for itself in no time.  I'll definitely swap out the scarf, cardi and shoes for other looks. 
What's your uniform these days?

I am so glad you bought this because I am considering it as well. How does the top fit???? I have no chest so I am concerned it wont fit in the top.

Wow - only $34?? That's a deal for such a beautiful dress!

some of you have asked about the fit. I think this dress runs a bit larger. I got a medium (7-8) and I think I could have gotten a small. I had to get it hemmed because I am a shorty 5'1 on a good day. Hope this helps! It is indeed a very comfy and versatile dress.

it's suppper pretty! :) i wonder if it's a zip-up dress??

sealaura said...

no zip, just pull it over your head and go! It does have a detachable halter strap.
